New 3D approach to X-ray imaging recognised as part of Oxfordshire Business Award
Adaptix Imaging’s progress in developing a new generation of low radiation dose affordable medical scanners has been recognised at the 2018 Oxfordshire Business Awards, where it has won The Oxford Science Park Innovation Award. Its technology, which allows highly portable, low-cost, low-dose 3D imaging, has potential in a range of clinical areas and is attracting significant interest from commercial partners. This is the third year that The Oxford Science Park, one of the UK’s leading parks for science and technology companies, has sponsored the Innovation Award.
In an Award open to companies in all sectors across the County, the judges were looking for an innovative product or process which had made progress over the past three years, driving corporate development in a significant way. Adaptix Imaging’s Flat Panel X-ray Source allows high quality medical imaging without the drawbacks of existing technologies such as 2D X-ray and computerised tomography (CT) scanning. In addition, the company, which employs over 30 people, is expanding rapidly and generating a significant patent portfolio.
Piers Scrimshaw-Wright, Managing Director of The Oxford Science Park, said, ‘Adaptix Imaging is a very worthy winner of The Oxford Science Park Innovation Award 2018. We were very impressed by the team there, the progress it has made in moving its imaging technology towards the market, and the potentially significant healthcare benefits.’
Mark Evans, CEO of Adaptix Imaging, said, ‘It’s a real honour to be the winner of The Oxford Science Park Innovation Award 2018, in recognition of the significant technological and corporate progress Adaptix Imaging has made over the past three years. X-ray imaging is the world’s most important diagnostic, and our technology will make it more effective. We will continue to work hard to deliver our technology to fulfil this need and one day we hope our technology will touch the lives of everyone you know.’
